Default Re: Debate- Salary Caps?

fans shouldn't have to suffer because of cheap owners, or owners who just can't match stienbrenner dollar for dollar. the size of the owners bank account should never be the determining factor when it comes to championships. one only has to look at the empty stadiums of the lower market teams to see what not having a cap is doing to baseball.....i'd dig up attendance stats on some lower market teams who struggle every year....and compare them to the big market teams.then i'd follow it up with the declining TV ratings for MLB... as compared to the growth of NFL and nascar.
